Remember this post about sticking out?
I may have to turn it into a series of posts.
Yesterday I went to get a smog inspection so we can register our car CA.
(Yeah for CA license plates!)
While sitting there, Kylee caught the attention of the two other people in the shop.
We talked about how little babies are wonderful and great.
Soon one person left and I found myself talking to a middle-aged lady about raising kids.
She said that even though girls were "easier", she preferred boys.
Here was her reasoning,
"Boys won't come home pregnant or with a baby!
I think there's something inside girls that just want children."
She went on to say
"Of course the best option is for people to just wait to have sex until they're married but no one does that anymore."
This is where I came in
"Actually, I did that. My husband and I waited until we were married.
It was a wonderful decision and we will teach our children to do the same."
Well the lady looked at me like she'd never seen anyone like me before
and then started asking questions.
We talked for another 30 minutes about
the benefits of keeping intimacy within the relationship of husband and wife.
I'll spare you the details but it was a good conversation
She complimented me for my life decisions
and eventually we went our way.
Maybe I talk to strangers too much.
And for the record, the smog check took WAY longer than the guy had originally told me.
But for once I'm glad!
